The first thing you shall notice after installing DriveScrubber is definitely the professional-looking interface.
Since it performs such an important task, DriveScrubber relies on an eye-candy look with tons of information everywhere you look, so every single feature comes with detailed descriptions to make sure you're on the safe side all the time.
The main window prompts you to choose between the three major features, namely wipe all contents of a drive, wipe free space of a drive or create a DriveScrubber boot disk. As you can see, each feature comes with a pretty self-explanatory name, so it's easy to figure out how to use it.
Of course, each aforementioned tool has its very own set of configuration options, so you need to configure the disk or the area to be cleaned, as well as multiple parameters before proceeding with the actual wiping process.
It can work not only with local disks, but also with removable drives, letting more advanced users choose the number of overwrite passes and the wiping technique, which can be either the DOD 5220.22-M or a custom pattern.
DriveScrubber does its job in a very short time, but it's highly recommended to pay attention to every single feature because a faulty configuration could permanently remove critical data from your system. A help manual is also available, so make sure you have a look in there too in case you're not sure that you're doing the right thing.
All in all, DriveScrubber is a very handy piece of software, with a professional-looking interface and advanced customization options. Plus, the wiped data cannot be recovered and no recovery software managed to read the removed files.
